There’s this band called MGMT (pronounced Management) and most of their music sounds like a debaucherous 3AM party soundtrack, but I was listening to their song “Kids” the other day and I heard these lyrics:
Take only what you need from it.
A family of trees falling,
To be haunted.
The water is warm,
But it’s sending me shivers…
Decisions are made and not bought
But I thought this wouldn’t hurt a lot
I guess not…”
My interpretation is that these guys are talking about sustainability, global warming and considering the consequences of our actions, so that there will be something left for the “kids” in the future. I could be wrong. Whatever the meaning is, it’s a pretty good jam for a Friday.
